Vote Now and Give-Away: Two Colour Quilts

Quilters' Show & Tell

Grab yourself a pencil and some paper as it’s voting time for this week’s Quilters’ Show & Tell event. The theme is Two Colour Quilts. Please note, that I modified the theme earlier this week, allowing two colour plus background colour quilts to be entered.

This week’s guest judge is Sandra from Sandra’s Craft Corner. She’ll have 100 bonus points to assign to up to four quilts.

Give-Away from The Caffeinated Quilter


Hello again! Emily Breclaw here from The Caffeinated Quilter, and I am so excited to be sponsoring the Two-Colour Quilts Show and Tell! For the past month, I’ve been busy wrapping up three new patterns to debut at Fall Quilt Market, and I’d like to share them with you today as well.

Each of these patterns features the detailed steps and diagrams you’ve come to expect from The Caffeinated Quilter. All three patterns are available at a special sale price through my Craftsy store this week. And if you’re at Quilt Market, be sure to stop by the Pattern Peddlers booths to see the quilts in person!


Metacognition is a great quilt for playing with color/contrast. The pattern includes a design worksheet, so you can audition color layouts (and I bet it would look really cool with a two-colour layout as well!)

This is a huge, fun and slightly silly quilt just in time for Christmas. If you start now, you’ll be snuggling under it in plenty of time for the holidays.

I used the original design for this quilt to make a Hoffman Challenge quilt. That quilt is currently touring with the collection, so I made this one slightly larger for the pattern. This quilt makes a stunning large wallhanging or throw quilt. It’s also a fantastic place to show off fussy-cutting and sparkly Asian fabrics.


This week’s winners will receive a copy of each of my Emily’s three new patterns. The top quilter with the most community votes and guest judge points will win as well as one person that leaves a comment below.


To enter the give-away: Visit Emily’s Pattern Store, then leave a comment below answering “Which pattern is your favourite?”. You have until Monday, October 28th, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. to enter.

    All such grand quilts!! They are all winners!

  5. Carol says:

    I don’t know how I can choose a favorite! All are exceedingly beautiful and show a great deal of care in construction. Each of the 3 patterns in the give-away are lovely too and it’s hard to choose… probably the Japanese Flower Garden. Happy birthday to Karen; today is my 41st anniversary.

  6. Debbie Lange says:

    Japanese Garden is my favorite. I love lots of colors in my quilts, interesting shapes and arrangements of blocks.

  7. caryn b says:

    Japanese Flower Garden is my fav. but I am not sure I am qualified to create it!!

  8. Stephanie Fraser says:

    I’ve been dying to make the adorable delectable watermelon for months. I saw it this summer and have been determined to find the time to learn to english paper piece so I could make it. I really like all the patterns.

  9. Mary Spriet says:

    I really like the idea of Colosal Peppermints. Looks simple & fun!

  10. Cindy A. says:

    It’s a tossup between Tumbling Snowflakes and Japanese Garden. Both of these are right up my alley.

  11. Cheryl B says:

    Colossal Peppermints is my favorite! Hope to win this sweet pattern and make a few for Christmas gifts.
